We Send you a Quote for the Project

Before starting, we’ll send you a detailed quote for our services.
We look at things like size, difficulty, complexity, and bid date when determining pricing. Every project is unique so we take the time to
review each project individually.


We Estimate and Send you Your Project

Our team will digitally takeoff the quantities for your project and prepare your entire bid for you. We use a highly accurate cost database
that’s based on the zip code so the numbers will be extremely accurate and competitive.

How we calculate our numbers

The first step of every estimate is to perform a takeoff in-house and determine the quantities. We’ll prepare a detailed estimate and break down the entire estimate by CSI division.

We work on projects in all 50 states. As a starting point, we use a database called Craftsman National Construction Estimator and make adjustments based on complexities on the jobsite.

For example: for complicated wall assemblies, we might add costs for labor due to slower productivity or need extra equipment such as a Scissor Lift or Aerial Boomlift.

We are a licensed General Contractor and everyone in our team has actual tangible experience in the field not just theory. We require a background in Construction, Engineering, or Architecture to work at I AM Builders as an estimator so you can feel confident experience construction professionals are working on your bids.

We even back our estimates with a $1 Million Accuracy Guarantee covered by our Errors and Omissions Insurance.

CASE STUDY: How I AM Builders won a $4 Million Hospital New Construction project for the Go2Guy General Contractors

Xavier Miranda, owner of the Go2Guy, is a client of ours and primarily worked on GC and Subcontractor projects. He got this incredible opportunity to bid on their company’s biggest project, Jackson Hospital West in Miami, FL.

Their only issue was the lack of time they had to bid such a big project while still running their other jobs.

Because we had worked on a few jobs with them, they contacted us to help them prepare a bid package. He hired I AM Builder’s construction estimating services to calculate his labor and material including equipment and profit.

I AM Builders estimated the project and adjusted for Davis Bacon Prevailing wage rates. We also assisted in the negotiation and qualification phase on behalf of Go2Guy.

Fast forward several months and Go2Guy WAS AWARDED a $4 Million Contract.
